Why music education at OSU?
Large enough to offer you rewarding performance opportunities, OSU's music department
is also small enough to provide you with a welcoming and supportive atmosphere to
study music education. You'll have the opportunity to work with faculty who are nationally
and internationally renowned artists and music scholars. The program also leads you
toward completing an Oklahoma teacher's certificate.

careers that include performance, teaching, working in the music industry, and beyond.
Our graduates have pursued successful careers in a variety of fields:
